GIFT IN KIND WAREHOUSE
United Way's Gift in Kind warehouse is one of a kind!
United Way of Northwest Arkansas’ Gift in Kind Warehouse connects millions of dollars of donated product to local non-profit agencies, churches and regional food banks. Through this innovative program, over 230 non-profit agencies who serve needy children and families access the warehouse weekly for critical basic need products such as: paper goods, personal care, diapers, cleaning supplies, houseware items and much more. Agencies and churches participating in United Way’s Gift in Kind program receive materials that strengthen their abilities to provide quality services and programs for a nominal access fee to the warehouse.
United Way’s Gift in Kind Warehouse program and service to our community would not be possible without our corporate partner: Walmart. This mutually beneficial partnership allows Walmart to take vendor products that have been returned, have a slight defect, or are marked by vendors to donate, and distribute the product instead of sending to a landfill – supporting their sustainability efforts.
From July 2015-June 2016, the Warehouse pushed 4.1 million dollars worth of product back into our community and surrounding communities in need.
